Brightening Life with Creativity,
one day at a time...
I'm anticipating a busy weekend, but I wanted to wish you a
Here is a bunny I sculpted out of Paperclay.
When he dried, I painted him with acrylics and
then glued all of the pieces together.
I had never tried Paperclay before, but I really like it!
This little guy is VERY light, but still feels durable.
It accepted the paint and glue well and
I plan on using it again for some more projects soon. :)
I hope all of your projects are hopping along and
that you have the opportunity to go outside and sniff some flowers! :)
I have had an idea rolling around in my head for a new piece of fiber art. It's different, especially for me. It's not a landscape, not that realistic is the true sense of the word, and I've been working through it in my mind for a while.
I knew I wanted a gray background.
The off-white circles you see are actually templates for applique.
In the picture above,
I was messing around with sizes and placement.
Next step? Picking the colors for the circles and then the coordinating threads.
Then to pull it all together, I picked the quilting thread colors.
The white thread you see on the spool, holds a special surprise!
All of the threads I use are from Sulky, of course! :)
After making all of my circle appliques, I auditioned them on the background to confirm placement. The threads you see scattered,
are the "tails" left over from making the circles.
I will use those to hand-applique the circles to the background.
You'll have to come back soon and see the next steps
that lead to the finished piece!
